[GRASS-user] vector export to DXF in 3d ?

Hi all,

how can a 3D vector in GRASS6.4  be exported into a DXF while preserving the 3D content ?

Example: Isohypses are created from the 10m DEM of the spearfish data set by r.contour.

v.info asserts that the newly created vector file is truly 3d. Also v.to.3d flatly refuses to work on the vector layer.

Alas, exporting the vector using v.to.dxf results in a perfectly "flat" DXF.

Does anybody of a good workaround for this one ?
